Groups provide an opportunity to work through a variety of concerns within a person’s life while receiving support, gaining insight, learning and practicing new behaviors, and increasing self-esteem. In group therapy, you have the opportunity to:
- Increase your self-awareness and focus energy into aspects of your life you wish to change.
- Try out new behaviors and experiment with new ideas.
- Express feelings you are hesitant to express and assert yourself in new ways.
- Learn from other group members (and group facilitators) by getting feedback and finding out how others perceive you.
All groups are free to students who have paid student fees.
Interested students should call (402) 472-7450 to notify CAPS of their interest in participating. Students must schedule an Initial Evaluation or be a current CAPS patient to participate in ongoing CAPS group sessions.
Students also can join free online groups for college students and early adults each Thursday hosted by the Pathlight Mood & Anxiety Center, a national resource offering mental health support.
